Description
Fountain Grasses will always add a certain elegance to any garden, large or small. The evergreen leaves arch gracefully back to allow the tall stems of the flower heads to push upwards. Atop each stem appear long, feathery plumes, each flushed with black, which will catch the wind and add movement to your display, or, if standing still will be an interesting and delicate architectural plant. Very easy to grow, Pennisetum viridescens, require very little looking after and can be used either as a specimen plant or as part of a grasses collection. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

More Info
Take care not to overwater as Pennisetum plants may rot in over-wet soils. Although plants are hardy, they will benefit from the added protection of a dry mulch of bark or straw to protect the crown of the plant over the winter. Once you have enjoyed the autumn and winter interest of this plant, you should cut back any dead foliage and faded flowers in the spring.
